Fleur draws studies of her surroundings, creates stencils and uses spray paint and acrylic paint to form abstracted landscapes.
Fleur Stevenson is an emerging artist, whose work is inspired by the patterns, textures and shapes found among the landscapes she visits.
Working with mixed media (acrylic + spray paint) on board, Fleur’s paintings explore the negative spaces between (permanent and temporary) objects and invite the viewer to discover and navigate through these seemingly empty spaces.
Working intuitively with a sense of curiosity, Fleur sometimes works through an idea directly on the surface and other times researching and constructing a composition on paper, before moving to the surface.
Inspired by artists like Lee Krasner, Colin McCahon and Rachel Whiteread, Fleur’s work explores themes of interconnectedness, cultural dynamics and a sense of place, with the aim of bringing attention and focus to details in the everyday environment that are often overlooked.
